Submission Formats

To build the conference we invite the following contributions: 

All submissions are subject to a pre-review process carried out by the chairs that allow desk-rejects of incomplete, unfitted submissions and ensure coherence between paper and submission category. Full and exploratory papers and workshop proposals will be subject to double-blind peer where external reviewers don’t know the identity of authors, and authors don’t know the identity of external reviewers. The review process follows a single round of submission, review and notification of review results followed by a process of preparing the manuscript for publication. 

Use the following template (this will be required for papers to be published).

Submit papers at

Accepted full and exploratory papers, and workshop descriptions will be published through the online DRS Digital Library and Nordes digital archive. Publications will be available as open access during and after the conference. Furthermore, a selection of the best full papers will be offered options to appear in an edited volume in the Springer series Design Research Foundations:
